Good morning world.
I’m feeling really exhausted today; don’t know why. I shouldn’t be tired. We have days like this – days that we don’t want to get out of bed; not really sleepy, but just want to lie there and think, reflect, and meditate.
But I have too much to do to stay in bed all day so up I jumped, ate oatmeal with fruit and drank two cups of Starbucks coffee with chocolate truffle creamer. I sat down at the computer and started working on blogs in MS word. After the Holy Spirit started my creative juices flowing, things were going well until I needed to research something on the World Wide Web. That’s when I discovered my WIFI wasn’t working and I could not access the internet.
It’s truly amazing how dependent we have become on the internet. I could have researched the material manually by looking through a few books but it is so much easier to type in a question and get several immediate responses in a moment. Why waste precious time reading when I can just type my request. Initially, I refused to use technology and trusted the old techniques to do what I wanted them to do. And they did, but not with the speed and accuracy of the new instruments.
Back to my dilemma – I called Time Warner Cable (TWC) to make sure my service had not been disconnected, which was not. Anyone who has ever called TWC or any of the service providers know you are on the phone with them for hours as they attempt to help you resolve the problem. I spent the next two hours on my knees unplugging and reconnecting cables, tracing black wires from the modem to the router, from the computer to the modem until I was totally frustrated and sweating. TWC stayed with me, though I was ready to forget it. The internet provider got me connected back with the World Wide Web.
My impatience, frustration, and feeling of exhaustion brought the scripture from Isaiah to mind, “Wait on the Lord and He will renew your strength.”
I inhale and exhale, releasing the impatience, frustration, and exhaustion, and wait for the Lord to renew me.
I am energetic!
I am excited!
I am renewed!
Why do you believe the Lord will provide renewal for you when you’re frustrated and exhausted?
Meditational Scripture: Isaiah 40:31 (KJV) “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
